Every year, Second Baptist Church of Houston, Texas takes thousands of Junior High and High School students on Beach Retreat where they spend four days having fun in the sun, worshiping and getting closer to God through His Word. This devotional book is created for their "Silent Sounds" time where they all gather on the beach and individually read and reflect.
The cover is printed with a soft touch coating and then hit with a raised spot UV on the title on both front and back, giving the cover an amazing look and feel. The inside pages throughout the entire book are printed on high gloss stock, but then coated with a dull varnish on selected areas to not only give it a lot of really cool visual interest in the splatters and texture, but also to dull areas where the students can write without the ink from their pens smearing.
Below are some of my favorite spreads from this project.
